Video: Burglar steals power equipment from Benton residence


Bossier Sheriff’s Office detectives are seeking the public’s help in identifying a burglar who is caught on home surveillance video stealing power equipment from a Benton address last week.

Surveillance video from the residence on the 400 block of Linton Bellevue Road in Benton shows a white Ford Expedition (around 1998 model) pull up to the patio area around 12:30 p.m. on Oct. 3.  A white male is seen exiting the truck and knocking on the side patio doors.  When no one answers, the man walks around, surveying the area. 

The video then shows the suspect open the back driver’s side door, and the lone burglar loads the equipment into his truck.  He stole a Stihl weed eater, Toro blower, Stihl chain saw and a Honda power washer, all totaling around $1,330.

The suspect is described as a white male, approximately 5’9” and about 240 pounds.  He is seen wearing dark shorts, a light-colored shirt and a baseball cap. 

Anyone with information about the identity of this thief is asked to contact Bossier Crime Stoppers at (318) 424-4100 or the Bossier Sheriff’s Office at (318) 965-2203.
